HERMÈS-PRINCE’S BUILDING

The façade of the Hermes store in the centre of Hong Kong was inspired by bamboo scaffolding con­struction techniques, wrapping the building in copper-coloured anodised aluminium tubes. This, in combination with extensive glass used  on both façades suffuses the store with a golden light.

Inside the store the architects used bamboo for flooring and the staircase, inspired by traditional Chinese building techniques. The  store is located at the crossroads of the Ice Street House and Road Greetings in a 1965 building that has been subjected to many A&A modifications over the years. The project entailed new façade elevations to both frontages, interior A&A modifications and full interior fit-out.
